America’s “God and Country” priests love places of honor at Presidential prayer breakfasts, football games, parades, and political conventions.

America places pious phrases in public places (“In God We Trust”) … [and] wraps the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ in the stars and stripes, leading her citizens into a kind of national idolatry.

But Jesus is not partial to the United States. He loves the whole world.
